2015 Sommità Chardonnay

The 2015 Skywalker Vineyards Sommità Chardonnay is an unoaked wine that captures the bright, fruit-forward flavors of Marin County Chardonnay. Without the influence of oak, it allows the true characteristics of the Chardonnay varietal to rise to the top. You notice the aromatics of tropical fruit such as pineapple and guava blossom on your initial pass. The flavors of green apple, pear and citrus come out with your first taste. The finish has a clean minerality and invites you back for another sip.

Sommità Chardonnay is planted at a 950-foot elevation on the Summit of the Skywalker Ranch property. Growing Chardonnay in this area allows us to leave the grapes on the vine up to 30 days longer than most Chardonnay producers. By doing this, the vine has more time to allow the seed to fully mature. The 2015 growing season was mild and we continued to see little to no rain after the flowering. This temperate fall climate gave the grapes a consistent luxurious season to develop the finest flavors.

2015 Skywalker Chardonnay

The 2015 Skywalker Chardonnay comes from a cooler climate season; with a slight green hue, the color resembles drying hay still in its youth. Upon tasting, hints of white pear, ripe fig, melon, and tropical notes of pineapple. Continuous flavor fills the palate with obvious minerality and confectionary notes of warm spice and toffee implying the barrel influence on this wine. This Chardonnay is finished, layered, and pleasing to the senses. Aged 12 months in oak, the wine fermented sur lie, creating richness and complexity. Due to limited production, 2 bottles maximum can per purchased per order. 

News from Wine Spectator

Wine Spectator Score: 92 

Issue Jul 31, 2017

Tasting Note from Wine Spectator: Combines pure, rich flavors with deft balance and a graceful texture, allowing the mix of lemon, pear, white peach and green apple notes to glide along, ending with a burst of fruitiness. Has the intensity and balance to gain, as the texture is a touch raw. Drink now through 2020. 92 cases made.
